You Look Lovely Today

I really enjoyed scrapping this page. Firstly I decided to add brown into the pink colour, I didn't know if it would be the right colour for the photo but it turned out great. The paper is from Glitz Design " Pretty In Pink". I white washed a brick wall on the paper, then cut out one the hearts from my Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge at 8 1/2". The little pink flowers are Prima, they are so cute and were just the right colour to match the paper. The dressmakers dummy is from Kaisercraft wood embellishments. Added some pearls, a transparency, a couple of small antique doilies from my stash and added linda's name and a few pearls and the page was done. This is one of my favourite pages. I hope you enjoy it.

The string of pears was a bit fiddly to attach. I glued it in just a few places with  glossy accents.

I  thought I would have a change from the girlie photos and do a male layout. I had some Graphic 45 Old Curiosity Shoppe paper, stickers and cardboard cutouts, so I went to work scrapping this page. This is a photo taken after my son's wedding, sitting in the back of The Hummer getting ready to be driven to the reception. He seemed very pleased with himself, by the look on his face. I painted some chipboard alphabets with Maya Mist "Popsicle Blue" which was the perfect colour to match the paper.

The cardboard cutouts and stickers which come with this paper are so great. I have noticed that most of the paper which is being designed and in the shops recently, have a whole set of embellishments to create a page, I think this is a great idea. You can do a whole theme with very little wastage. Hope you enjoy this fun page.
